Holibobs Part 2

Ere is the next instalment of our very long holibobs. After Keswick we drove up through The Borders waving paws at fellow borders as we went. Our next campsite was on the shore of a big lake called Loch Lomond and the day after we arrived we had pawsome tweetup with good pal Monty @littledonna7 & his Mum. 

Here is Monty watching me swimming. Look at scenery!

And here is Monty and me getting treats

We then moved on to Blair Atholl, the country residence of good pal Leo @leotheborder

We did also meet good pal Blaze @blazespage and dad got a bit emotional as we have followed the adventures of Blaze since he was a very young puppy.

Attenshun please, pose for picture

Was the Highland Games at Blair Atholl and I've entered tossing of the caber but I has to get this big stick into the arena, tug, tug, tug. Do I get prize for biggest stick?

And finally this very well dressed Major Band man or something did pose for picture with me.

And finally finally we were relieved not to see Border Terrier on this menu, seems every other poor anipal is fair game

More updates next week

Holibobs Part 1

Ello pals. As you know we have just started a very long holibobs to Scotland. During the packings I found a stowaway, it's my little pal RoRo @roroterrier who somehow found his way into my rucksack. 

Our first stop was in Clumber Park where we had arranged to meet Bertie @midgeunique He is a very nice BT and we had a short walk but arranged a longer walk the next day. 

Our walk next day was very exciting as it involved Bertie taunting the swans and being interested in baby geese much to anger of their parents. 

We also did swimming together though this mainly involved me trying to stop Bertie getting hold of my tennis ball. 

After a long walk with Bertie we has to have a long sleep. 

The next day we had long drive into place called Yorkshire where we paid a visit to the first Rohan shop to be opened. It's in Long Preston and a message had been sent to them to expect us. I was very well treated by the lovely staff of Marti, Paula and Gill.

Finally we reached Keswick in the Lake District. Here we had arranged to say ello to Bella and her mum, Lyn @krguidedwalks and here we are with her dad too. 

The next day it rained only as it rains in the Lake District. It rained all day so we stayed in the holibobs wagon. 

The next day we went back into Keswick to do some shopping for me at Podgy Paws (a pawsome place to visit) and here I am with staff member Fraser outside. 

We then went on a very long walk along a disused railway track to Threkeld. But of course I found some lovely smelly fox poo to roll in which really pleased Dad. We had to go back to Podgy Paws for special shampoo and I was treated to a cold shower. 

While in Keswick we also said hello to Christeen at 'my' shop there. 

We now having a rest day as I have sore paws from yesterday's walk.
